Briefly: It's coming. The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's next movie, a sci-fi thriller titled Interstellar, will arrive in just a few weeks. Paramount/Warner Bros will be showing the trailer, which runs 1 minute and 43 seconds, in front of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arriving in theaters starting December 13th. This is one of our most anticipated movies in the works, currently scheduled for release November 7th, 2014 less than a year away. The plot is about a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations of space travel in an interstellar voyage. Nolan's cast: Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, with Michael Caine.

Note: Paramount, who is releasing Interstellar in the US, has yet to officially confirm this news. However, the first trailer is 100% finished and ready and will be debuted this December. All signs point to The Hobbit.

SCIFI FOREVER I wish the movie be DARK and Serious. I love when scifi take ownself seriously. But i think every scifi need one element to be graceful & lovely : CREATIVITY CREATIVITY in every aspect : First of All (STORY) then Directing , Music , Cinematography , Editing and even ACTING. Last Surprisingly Incredible Scifi i saw was without a doubt : GRAVITY. I think "g" of that movie was more than 9.8 m/s2 for me. It SHOCKED and HOOKED me like when first time i taste 2001 Space Odyssey or was in Trance of Blade Runner. Can Nolan do it again? SCIFI FOREVER

Or Danny Boyle 2007 masterpiece Sunshine. Yes I said masterpiece.

Matthew on Nov 28, 2013


i wouldn't say masterpiece but I really dug that film

me on Nov 28, 2013


Whatever word comes to mind that fits between masterpiece and great movie. That's what sunshine was. Loved it.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2013


Ah so glad to see someone else who loved it. A lot of people I know hated the ending. I didn't mind it. It was a bit abstract but I really dug it because it was so out there. Also i'd like to mention that if you have a proper home theater sound system, you'll need to get the Bluray because it has one of the best and most detailed surround sound mixes i've heard.

Buzzfunk on Nov 28, 2013


Count me on the loved it list.

Al Apone on Nov 28, 2013


I'm with you, it didn't bother me at all. I loved that final act.

OfficialJab on Nov 28, 2013


Good movie, but monster-on-the-loose ending was pretty weak

conradthegreat on Nov 28, 2013


I like that film , but will never consider it a masterpiece . And, the film has it flaws and plot holes .

carmen j. on Nov 29, 2013


SciFi Forever! this should become a Chant in every major Scifi related Any-Con, Gravity rocked, Sunshine too, and this looks, very, very promising, the Invasion of Scifi intensifies? yes please...

Nolan is overrated.

Charlie Hard on Nov 28, 2013


Overrated maybe but there is no denying he makes good movies. I felt inception and DKR were a step back but movies like memento and TDK are the reason he is held in such high regard.

Jon Odishaw on Nov 28, 2013


The fact that DKR still over burden with it's constant plot holes and half descent story getting the highest of praise makes me think why. People just look to him as the "God" or "Jesus" of cinema when he is not. It's every time a film by him is announced now people are making it to be this next great almighty masterpiece. He has made a few good films, he had made a few bad films as every director in their career has.

Charlie Hard on Nov 28, 2013


bold statements to mention that The Dark Knight Rises suffered from "plot holes" and a "half decent story" (wrong on both accounts). Would you care to back up your statement or should we true film connoisseurs write this off as another douche bag comment?

conradthegreat on Nov 28, 2013


TDKR is not a perfect movie. Sorry to tell you.

cobrazombie on Nov 28, 2013


Goodfellas, Casino, No Country For Old Men....those are "perfect" movies. I don't recall mentioning TDKR was a perfect movie. However, based on your reply, I suppose us true film connoisseurs should go ahead and write this off as another douche bag comment after all.

conradthegreat on Nov 28, 2013


I would never consider any film perfect- especially the one s you listed. And, I am a huge fan of Godfather I & II and Raiders of the Lost Ark .

carmen j. on Nov 29, 2013


I'm not sure the plot holes were too bad, just a lot of things that could have been fixed with a couple lines of dialogue or a cheap scene weren't, like Bruce returning to Gotham. It's my least favourite of that series for various story reasons though.

OfficialJab on Nov 28, 2013


Yeah, he's definitely made a few decent movies. But the worship he gets is a bit over the top.

cobrazombie on Nov 28, 2013


At least you can watch any one of his movies at any can't say that about other directors' movies

dawko on Nov 28, 2013


More like...he has made several great movies, several very good movies, and a decent movie(Insomnia)....but despite the incredibly strong resume, he does in fact STILL get a bit too much blind love.

Chris Groves on Nov 29, 2013


Ah the next movie from the most overrated director known to scifi nerds world wide. Heh, just my own opinion so dont get your panties in a bunch 🙂 It must be nice for Nolan and his brother to have a superficial reputation as being scifi/comic movie gods. I dont know whether it was "Rises" plot holes and stupid ending or the incoherent mess that was Inception, that made me shake my head the most. Even the Dark knight is considered to be 'great' but I dont see it. BUT and thats a big BUT, I really really loved The Prestige. I still watch it like once a month. So there is hope but the equation that Nolan+scifi=amazing is still up in the air. Maybe if he wouldn't let his Bro write these silly and weak scripts, he be off much better.

Buzzfunk on Nov 28, 2013


Might I just point out that you wrote the longest comment on this thus far just to point out how poor Nolan is in your opinion. Rather than arguing your case, you just add " just my own opinion so don't get your panties in a bunch" with a sly smile. I don't know about others, but to me this sounds either like you feel a bit too good about your own opinion or you're hoping for an enraged response. But I'd like to ask: Why did you think Inception was an incoherent mess?

Snev De la Fontaine on Nov 28, 2013


An even better question would be: how would he actually fix all those problems he listed as opposed to spewing out all that negativity

axalon on Nov 28, 2013


Ah the internet. Where the fuck do i "spew" negativity? Can not one person be allowed to just not like a directors work without getting trolled and bashed? So instead of voicing my opinion i should...gasp..suggest FIXES? haha oh man. Granted im kinda on point but i did express my liking to his work on Prestige. Can you fucking read? geeez

Buzzfunk on Nov 28, 2013


I totally agree Buzzfunk, these Nolan fanboys(and girls), attack anybody with a different opinion about Mr.Nolan. Certain directors you can't talk about on this site without getting attacked from these commentators.

rage72 on Nov 30, 2013


I don't think that's necessary, actually. Just because you can't or wouldn't know how to make a good shoe shouldn't stop you from saying your shoes are pinching.

Snev De la Fontaine on Nov 28, 2013


Shoes and movies are two completely different things though. One probably took, what, maybe a few weeks to design by probably one or two people? Movies are collaborative processes that involve dozens if not hundreds of people. To use your analogy, yes saying that your shoes are pinching is one thing. But if you're hanging out with someone and every day they say "these shoes pinch!" then wouldn't you say "then fine, get another pair!" at some point? The internet is that person complaining every day. I just get tired of the bashing and want someone to actually have some balls and say what'd they'd fix or at the very minimum at least say something positive about the director as opposed to just jumping on the hate circle jerk which seems so commonplace nowadays.

axalon on Nov 28, 2013


Sadly , most of the internet is spewing hate . I see most of these haters as anonymous cowards.

carmen j. on Nov 29, 2013


haha However you think i feel about my own opinion is your problem. Yes, i added that because I know that people dislike it when you critic, god forbid, someone like Nolan. And how is this comment 'long' and where did i point out how 'poor' Nolan is? Im not going to get into details unless someone is curious, in a normal manner, as to why I dislike these movies. I'd sure can share that with you. But heh, Im a movie fan first. I want them to be good but going into the theater time and time again only to get disappointed by basic and obvious flaws, well, it just makes one i guess a bit more cynical and maybe a bit more negative...If Interstellar is good, i'd be more then happy to eat my words...

Buzzfunk on Nov 28, 2013


I'd be curious about ANY negative rant . As , if you don't specify how are we to judge the validity of your criticism ? Or even agree with it . People on every movie site tend to complain without explanation . Now ,since everyone has pointed out the animosity toward Nolan , we get that . As for TDKR , the only major plothole I saw was getting back to Gotham from Bane's prison so fast ..I wasn't that impressed with the flick , but that's because I'm tired of Bats and Supes reboots from DC ( what is that , the 5th ? 6th ? reboot of Batman ? unnecessary ...) .

Dominic on Nov 28, 2013


I thought Inception was a super tight screenplay. Couple holes, but not dealbreakers by any means. Prestige was magnificent.

OfficialJab on Nov 28, 2013


I adore Prestige- very rich , complex , and wonderfully acted . That film maybe Hugh Jackman's best performance to date .

carmen j. on Nov 29, 2013


Buzzfunk, I want to see you do a sci-fi and do a better job than the Nolan brothers. Then, you can talk. It is not easy to pull-off. Dark Knight Rises had its issues , but it was still better than most comic book films . I can't deal with all the over-the-top CGI in The Avengers and most of the mediocre and smug acting performances . Inception is a true masterpiece. I watch that film repeatedly and find something new every time I watch it . It is very rare I watch a film repeatedly .

carmen j. on Nov 29, 2013


I liked Avengers a lot, large in part to the smugness of the characters because early in the film several of them think that they're the hero. There sure was a lot of CG, but it felt earned, though I think costumes for the alien army wouldn't have been that hard, and would have saved them a fortune.

OfficialJab on Nov 29, 2013


Looking forward to see it, Nolan is my most favorite director.

AHox on Nov 28, 2013


This movie got so much less interesting when I read that they're exploring outer space because in the future humanity has trashed Earth. Feels way too familiar. Couldn't we explore for exploration's sake in the future?

OfficialJab on Nov 28, 2013


Dude, this is Nolan we are talking about. If that was the whole story it wouldn't have been leaked. It might be a small part or it could be misinformation. Remember when the plot for Inception that was circulating on line involved dicaprio being framed for a murder in a dream and he had to prove his Innocence? It was in the movie but it was in no way central to it. I believe in Chris Nolan

Arsene Kuri on Nov 28, 2013


Also as u see TODAY with our politics , people don't get motivated to do stuff UNTIL their backs are against the wall . i.e. an Earth disaster making most of it unhabitable ... THEN the money will appear from outta nowhere , for spaceships . Human procrastination leads to conflict which can be written into dramatic stories ....scifi writers have been using that behavioral aspect since the 1920's ... Yes it would be nice . But leaders don't even believe global warming ; how you gonna convince them to spend money for something that's " out there " ? Which may not even return with something useful , IF it returns at all ....

Dominic on Nov 28, 2013


I almost laughed out loud when you wrote "less than a year away" Alex. It's short a year by 21 days, which shows you have the same hopeful movie fandom any dedicated viewer does (and one I can relate to). I look forward to this trailer, and will certainly impatiently await the theatrical release.

Quanah on Nov 28, 2013


I've decided not to see the trailer, and that is because I am already extremely hyped for this movie, and I'm afraid that if I see the trailer, I will get unrealisticly high expectations. I think that the less I know about the movie before I see it, the better.

Arne Bjarne on Nov 28, 2013


Nolan is good and all...but some of his outings are rather stale...I have hopes for Interstellear.

Xerxexx on Nov 29, 2013


I can't wait for this. Nolan almost exclusively makes films that are, at minimum, very very good. Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises are all great...while Insomnia was so-so. I think this COULD end up being his best film yet. It's certainly his most interesting. I've been interested in this since WAY back when Spielberg was attached to direct.

Chris Groves on Nov 29, 2013


37 comments. Makes sense. Can't wait for this.

Armitall on Nov 29, 2013


This really does look good I cant wait!

Jimmy Love on Nov 29, 2013


Really excited to see Nolan and Hathaway working together again.
